Title: c64
Post by: Seob on March 08, 2012, 10:30:00 PM
In exchange for a sixpack of palm beer i got the following stuff:
1x c64
1x c64c
2x datasette
1x 1541-II diskdrive
1x final cartridge III
1x powersupply for the c64
1x powersupply for diskdrive
1x video to scart cable
2x serial cable to connect the diskdrive
2x the arcade joystick
40 or so disks
original manuals for c64, diskdrive, datasette, final cartridge and printer.
1 laser lt421 laptop.
The c64 needs some work since a few keys won't work, but the rest is running fine.

Also i found a bezerk boardgame from MB at a secondhand store yesterday for 4 euro.

LOL, i accept almost every brand of beer.
I should have bought some c64 games on the retrofair.
Going to make myself a xm1541 transfer cable so i can transfer disk images from pc to c64.
Can't imagine you're short on c64's. But i have some spare ones.
P.M. me for the videopac mod.

don't bother - get yourself an 1541Ultimate:
http://www.1541ultimate.net (http://www.1541ultimate.net)

its not really cheap, but its more than worth the money!
It replaces a Final Cartridge/Action Cartridge, the diskdrive, a memory expansion, lets you mount images on the fly by selecting them on screen etc.
never regretted to get mine :-)

Me too, i'd like to have an updated X1541 cable (that works on win7) as well so i could use the original hardware and use it for the Vic20/c16 too!

you can still use the original hardware :-) worst case you use the ultimate to transfer images to real disks ...

Ultimate Rules!!!

I have the x1541 cable but my c64 diskdrives kept on dying on me. Almost every Retrofair I went to I had to buy another diskdrive. I got so sick and tired of it. Old mechanical hardware is bound to choke and die someday.

The Ultimate 1541 is a breeze! All my games on one SD-cart and still plenty of room left. And it all functions just the same and better then with an original diskdrive. It works very intu´tive like you almost need no manual, still it has so many options I consider it one of my most precious retrogaming items.

I am convinced, however it still won't work with my VIC-20 (unlike ye-ol' 1541 which will work like a breeze).
Also: What else would i do with my hundreds of floppy-disks eh?
